Pattern: Pookies by Barbara Prime
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted in the Tuareg and Vaa colorways and Quince and Co. Lark in the Chanterelle colorway
Needles: Size 6 DPNs
I bought this pattern with the intention of working through my worsted weight leftovers, and I’ve fallen in love. My first go (a puppy) was finished in one day (after an emergency run to Joann’s for stuffing, beads, and eyes). The pattern’s great – super easy, and so cute when it’s done. It’s also awesome because you don’t need a ton of yarn in the contrasting stripe color (this is the largest size, so you can do less stripes), so I can see myself blowing through a ton of these with scraps of yarn. (Let’s see, L will probably get at least two for Christmas, and I can think of at least two new babies coming soon. Heck, I can probably give these to adults. All the kids at Mocksgiving? The possibilities are endless.)
I also knocked out some hexipuffs (in Malabrigo sock Cordovan, Knit Picks Stroll Midnight Heather, and Pine Woods Farms Autumn Leaves). The last one was particularly satisfying – I had exactly enough yarn for one. Exactly.
So that’s another three yarns off my current stash page. I can’t wait until the Pookies swing into full gear, and I can blow out more.
